Beedie School of Business MBA students braved the rain in front of the Olympic cauldron in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

MBA students from the Beedie School of Business put their studies on hold in favour of some street hockey recently, at the SFU MBA Five Hole for Food charity street hockey event.

The event was organized by SFU’s full-time and Management of Technology MBA students in partnership with Five Hole for Food, and took place at the Jack Poole Plaza (near the Olympic cauldron) in downtown Vancouver on 15 December.

Five Hole for Food is an annual coast to coast hockey tour which supports food banks across Canada. By setting up hockey rinks in the heart of each city they visit, Five Hole for Food encourages the public to play hockey and fight hunger at the same time.

All proceeds from the SFU MBA Five Hole for Food event were donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, which was on-site during the event. Attendees were asked to bring a canned food item to donate.

The event was open to everyone, and served as a warm up for the MBA students for the MBA Games, held in January 2013. The MBA Games is the largest gathering of MBA students in Canada, and provides an opportunity for students to compete against, network with and learn from some of the best and brightest business leaders in the country.
